The Mara&Meru™ Safari Voyager has long been a favourite of safari travellers to Africa. With its detachable, interchangeable end pockets which are stand-alone small satchels and backpacks, it is the ultimate travel bag. In classic safari-grade canvas and leather, this duffel allows you to create the bag you need for safari, business trips, or weekends away.
The compound design allows you to pack your clothes into the core bag and zip off the side pockets which are handy daypacks. The core bag can stay at the lodge or at your hotel, while the detachable sides can be taken along for activities. In core mode, it is the perfect size for short journeys, weekends away, or as hand luggage. The core bag comes standard with two small side pockets that attach to the core bag with zips. These can be removed and used independently as satchels and come with detachable shoulder straps.

With a subtle Southern Cross design in antique brass studs at the base of the handles, celebrate African travels with the constellation that has been used for navigation and held special importance in the lives of different cultures across Africa for centuries.

A note about luggage handlers, ground staff, and canvas and leather luggage: We stand by the quality of the construction of our canvas and leather range and the quality of the safari-grade canvas and leather we use to make our bags. We have also expedition tested all of our canvas and leather luggage so that we know just how tough it is. Canvas and leather are, however fabrics and, as with all fabrics, they have their limitations. While cases are few and far between and we have not experienced puncturing on our own safaris and expeditions, fabric, by its very nature, is able to puncture or tear if subjected to force, sharp objects, if thrown along an abrasive surface, or other forms of harsh handling. We urge any clients who have their luggage damaged by luggage handlers & ground staff to contact us for a quote to submit to their travel insurance to make a claim.
Kindly note that we do not have a professional repair service. We will try and assist in any way we can but, in the event of your bag being damaged on your travels, please submit a claim to your travel insurance.
